Short term plans #ramble

It’s Sunday morning once again and so I let you into the innermost labyrinth and share my thoughts with you. What’s on my mind this week? My health has come to the fore just lately so I have a doctor’s appointment and my other priority is buying a new washing machine. Those are just my short term plans to try to alleviate my immediate problems. I also have long term plans to improve my photography and those plans are coming together. I need to photograph more events but take my time and look for the really good shots.

Monochrome

I quite like monochrome, although these days we tend to call it grey-scale. I think I might shoot more in grey-scale and forget about the colour balance for a while. I need to experiment more especially in low-light situations. I can do that at home and in the garden sometimes and I did so yesterday. I added a little light using the flash on one shot and it made all the difference but I had to get the metering just right.

Short term – long term

So my short term plans are to solve problems but my long term plans are to try to get my photography to a professional standard. I used to have photos in the newspaper but my pictures seem less in demand now. So in the long term I think I’ll concentrate on exhibitions.

Goals

Some people fumble through life with no goals or plans and wreak havoc wherever they go. I prefer to be more organised and focused. I’m very aware of life passing me by and so I’m in a hurry to do things but that can be a mistake. We sometimes achieve more by simply taking our time.

Serendipity

We have to be aware of serendipity, those happy accidents in life that can give us the opportunities we want. I was on my way upstairs yesterday when I became aware of the warm light outside. I looked out to see a rainbow framing the house opposite and so naturally I went to grab my camera! Rainbows don’t come along in life very often, we have to make sure we don’t miss them.

Social Media

It is a sad fact that most people are uneducated and easy manipulated by social media. Warnings circulate telling people not to fill their cars with petrol or they might explode or play on their homophobia by telling them their butter has been contaminated with HIV. When they aren’t checking out the latest fake news on Facebook they are reading the latest dire weather warning from the Daily Express or nationalist polemic from the Daily Mail. There are forces at work that play on people’s fears and prejudices and also people who have personality disorders that include paranoia who love to spread fake news. They even use the term fake news to refute the real news! We live in a strange world populated in part by sick people.  We have to seek out those people who are reasonably well-balanced and help them to stay that way!

Anyway, that’s it for this week. If you would like to follow my blog and read some real opinions, as opposed to fake opinions you can follow it by entering your email address at the top of the sidebar or follow me on Twitter for links. There are also links on my Facebook page.
